50th wedding anniversary
Stephen and Audrey (Stratton) Koch are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary on Sept. 20, 2019. Longtime rumor has it that the couple met on a routine traffic stop (Steve as a highway patrol officer, Audrey as a fast driver), which brings a chuckle to all. Although others say they simply met at the Kewaunee County Courthouse as Audrey was a Social Worker and Steve, a WI State Patrolman. They were united in marriage on Sept. 20, 1969 in the Centennial Chapel at Camp Lucerne in Neshkoro. They have three children, Stacie (David Williamson), Shawn (Trisha), and Shane (Eartha). They have also been blessed with seven grandchildren, Paige, Stephanie, Alexa, Pierce, Liberty, Joseph, and Reagan. They are a perfect example of, “True love is neither physical, nor romantic. True love is an acceptance of all that is, has been, will be, and will not be.” If you see them out and about, please wish them a Happy 50th Anniversary. They have been such a blessing to their family, as well as to those in the community and beyond. We love you, Mom and Dad (Grandma and Grandpa)!
